Don't go for a wide range of menu items but do go for some of the best oysters in the city. Licensed with beer and wine only.

One of my Favs

Ive been going to rodneys for several years. In my opinion you can't get a better oyster west of PEI than at rodneys. They're always fresh and professionally shucked. Im reading reviews that mention poor service, but have never experienced that myself, always average to great. I highly recommend for the seafood lover. If you or your dining partner isnt into seafood, definitley not the spot for you.

Food was good, but service ranged from non-existant to very rude. At some restaurants you can get away with that; this is definitely not one of them. Now that I have been looking around at reviews online, it seems that a lot of people have had this experience. People should vote with their feet and stop going to this place.

The atmosphere was wonderful. We were there for an engagement dinner as my fiancé and I informed our families that we were tying the knot. The only aspect I found disappointing was the server seemed like he had too many tables, he would have benefited from an extra set of hands. Otherwise it was fantastic; definitely the best seafood in Toronto!

The staff and quality of the food make all the difference! Our server made a delicious assortment recommendation based on just knowing we liked Dukes Oysters from PEI. Paired with some wine, crab cakes, clams and the freshest bread for dipping, it was an excellent night!

Rodney’s Oyster House is the best place to have oysters and seafood. Our server selected great oysters for us to sample. The food was excellent. A good wine selection. This was a wonderful place to celebrate with family and friends. The scallops were succulent and the calamari crisp and delicious. We will definitely be back soon.

Service staff was friendly and very helpful. We ordered 6 different types of oysters, a clam chowder and a fried Calamari. All were most enjoyed. A glass of Pinot Grigio went well with the shellfish. We finished with a lemon pie and that was great too.

Atmosphere: sitting outside in the garden during the evening with loud construction noise coming from the street. Otherwise it's a nice little private area for the restaurant if you prefer to dine patio. Service: at points felt we were neglected... maybe cause they needed more servers inside the restaurant? Mediocre and it was not a busy night, was on a Tuesday evening. Food: food is on point as usual with fresh seafood. Unfortunately they didn't have any West coast oysters available when I dined.

We LOVE Rodney’s! It is one of our favourite 'go to' places for special occasions. Plenty of fabulous east and west coast fresh oysters. Started with 24 east coast mussels (PEI, N.B.,N.S. and Connecticut. And ordered another 24 PEI mussels...followed by tuna sashimi, key lime pie and creme brûlée. Never disappoints!

Unreal evening! Rodney's Oyster House has a garden that you would never believe existed - best kept secret in Toronto! I hosted a "summer social" there and it could not have been better. They took are of every little detail - all I had to do was show up and have fun! Food was amazing, wine was incredible and the atmosphere, being out side in the garden, was out of a movie. Thank you again Rodney's crew we will be coming back time and time again!!

We enjoyed our experience at the restaurant overall. Unfortunately the lobster we had was overcooked (the tail meat was very chewy + tough). Otherwise our meal was quite enjoyable, and the service was superb.
